Mike D’Antoni talked with me about the importance of depth and the rotation. You haven’t gotten that much of an opportunity, so some people might not be as familiar with you. So for those folks, who is Michael Frazier? Michael Frazier: I think I’m a guy that can defend multiple positions, knock down open shots and do whatever the team really needs me to do. I can kind of just be a chameleon, get in where I fit in. Just see what the team needs that night and try and contribute the best way that I can. But I think I’m a 3-point threat. That’s what I’ve been known for. And I think that’s what got me to this point. So just trying to go out there and focus on defending, being a good teammate and supporting my teammates and doing whatever Coach asks me to do, whatever my teammates need me to do to the best of my ability.
